Forum: classic_tv Subject: To avoid uploading copyrighted stuff, PLEASE ask before uploading!

I admit I and everyone else sometimes make mistakes, But a good deal of mistakes can be avioded by asking me and everyone else before you upload. BTW, The first song recorded by The Beatles ("That'll Be The Day") will be entered the public domain in the UK very soon. I'm so excited I could wet myself! I'm hoping to move to the UK when I'm older. Australia's copyright laws are actually WORSE than America's copyright laws, since they allow companies to perpetually copyright stuff just by CLEANING it!

I love The Beatles, and I downloaded so many of their songs (although I only saved 71 of my favorites). Like most people, I could care less which are and aren't copyrighted. This is all about sharing.

It's too bad this isn't a bit torrent site. I'd love to share episodes of Saturday Night Live and Wiseguy with you all. :)

I live my love alone
I don't hide it
So far I've ever known is to be fire,
that the water can't quell
Now everything you told
You can't hide it
Now everybody's gonna take you higher
then the truth is revealed

You are the one
You're the new star
Under my sun
Second to none
You're the true star
Under my sun
There is no way I will let
this moment pass me by
Listen to me now
Set yourself free now
You are the one
You're the one star
Under my sun

I live my love alone
I don't hide it
So far I've ever known is to be fire
That the water can't quell
You're in the danger zone
You can't hide it
so let your body try to take you higher
let your dreams become real

You are the one
You're the new star under my sun
Second to none
You're the true star
Under my sun
There is no way I will
let this moment pass me by
Listen to me now
Set yourself free now
You are the one
You're the new star
You are the one
You're the one star
You are the one
You're the new star
Under my sun
Second to none
You're the true star
Under my sun
There is no way I will
let this moment pass me by
Listen to me now
Set yourself free now
You are the one

You're the one star
Under my sun (so let your body try to take you higher
let your dreams become real)
You're the one star under my sun
(So let your body take you higher,
let your dreams become real

Don't forget, the flipside of that record, "In Spite Of All The Danger," is the same age! It will enter into public domain also. I like it because it's an original McCartney song. He was trying to emulate the song "Tryin' To Get To You," by Elvis. You can notice the similarities of both songs.

Plus, In 2011, My favourite Beatles song ever, "Cry for a Shadow" will enter the public domain. BTW, I got "The White Album" and "Anthology 1" today, along with volume 2 of the 80's sitcom "Hey Dad..!".

That's no big deal. A lot of the early Beatles songs were remakes (covers) of music originally written and performed by such 1950s rock and R & B pioneers as Chuck Berry (who is still performing at 81), Little Richard, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, etc. That was particularly true when Lennon & McCartney started in their high school band as The Quarrymen in 1957-58, during their first years as a professional group The Silver Beatles, and even the early tunes as The Beatles in the early 1960s.

The Beatles didn't do that many Elvis Presley songs, but then Elvis did his fair share of remakes too (including even those made more famous by The Beatles including the Elvis version of McCartney's "Something").

One of John Lennon's solo albums in 1975 had him singing his own modern versions of 1950s rock songs.

George Harrison wrote "Something," not Paul McCartney. Of course, even Frank Sinatra made that same mistake, so you're in good company.

Yes, it was George Harrison who wrote "Something". After the breakup of The Beatles, it was not only covered by Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, but also James Brown, Julio Iglesias, and Smokey Robinson.

It was the second-most covered Beatles song after McCartney's "Yesterday."
